THE VALUE OF WELLNESS

The global wellness economy was valued at $4.9 trillion in 2019 and then fell to $4.4 trillion in 2020, due to the widespread impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.

As we emerge from the pandemic, GWI predicts that the wellness economy will return to its robust growth. We project 9.9% average annual growth, with the wellness economy reaching nearly $7.0 trillion in 2025.

HOW MONACO BECAME THE GAMBLER’S MECCA

One day in the mid-19th century, when the tiny principality of Monaco was nearly bankrupt, Princess Caroline, wife of the hapless Prince Florestan of the ruling Grimaldi family, had a clever idea.

Amid rumours that gambling might soon be outlawed in the landlocked spa towns of Germany, Caroline persuaded her husband to legalize it, and they hurriedly built a casino in Monte Carlo.

Meanwhile, they took a different cue from the French Riviera, which for a time had been attracting the rich with the promise that the warm and salubrious Mediterranean airs would cure such ailments as “tuberculosis, weak nerves, obstructed perspiration, bad circulation, chest pain, general weakness, faintness, low spirits, fever, and loss of appetite”.

Though the sales pitch was health, vice was the true attraction. Monaco was soon thriving and a new age of hedonism at the seashore had begun.
